Axmit is not a typical executor, but more like an IT-partner

Eugene Lobski
posted on 27/5/19
None of various task trackers that we used before provided us sufficient information regarding the problem-solving processes in our company and the progress towards achieving the company's strategic goals.

At that time, we didn't have our own IT-department, and the company's plans didn't have the goal to increase expertise in the IT. So, we were searching for a reliable team that could rapidly provide the result at a reasonable price. We wanted to find the vendor that we could trust the same level as we trust our in-house employees. It was also important that Axmit deeply understood our ultimate objective and therefore managed the project excellently. After Axmit had successfully completed the first project, we decided to work with them on two new projects without any doubts.

After implementation of software developed by Axmit, the level of performance discipline increased by 60%, staff involvement increased by 33%, and the average percentage of quarterly goals achievement throughout the company reached 75%.

It was the first time when the company reached yearly goals by 100%, including indicators of profit and revenue growth rate.

We associate this success with the introduction of more efficient management systems, with the product designed for us by Axmit being a significant part of it.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

We didn't have to think about the technical side of the project. Project managers were deeply involved in defining which business goals the product should help to meet and suggested effective solutions. The team quickly reacted if we needed urgent fixes or improvements. Intermediate results were delivered on time.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

I think there isn't much to improve. It would be helpful to accompany releases with user guides to enhance the speed of integration among the staff as the system is rather huge and complex, and the number of users (employees) is more than 200.

Best vendor we've worked with

Johanna-Mai Riismaa

When we were looking for a developer who would rewrite our prototype into a scalable MVP for a SaaS startup, Axmit was an exceptional candidate who actually tried to understand the product, and asked the right questions. After their project description, we were way better able to understand what we were doing.

Axmit keeps their deadlines, communicates on weekends/national holidays, and is good at planning and documentation. They implemented an excellent CI/CD pipeline, and created our back-end, web app and mobile app.

We got the MPV done within the initial budget, and were then able to get our first clients, traction, and then raise our first funds.

After the initial MVP, we extended our contract to ongoing, and have continued to work with Axmit for a whole year of further development and maintenance.

We've referenced them to several of our partners and friends, and have gotten back thanks and similar feedback about work quality from them.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

Axmit personally visited our offices for a week, 5 months into the project (CEO+project manager+DevOps) - on their own expense, out of their own initiative.

We’ve been working together with Axmit for approx. 3 years on an ongoing basis.
Axmit has taken a bigger part of our project than we’ve expected. They are committed to the project and they’ve helped us to accomplish our goals by looking beyond our requirements and by continuously driving us forward.
They recently visited our office in Sweden on their own initiative which strengthened our collaboration furthermore. Andrei, the Project manager is fulfilling his role by taking initiative, always being available, having complete ownership and responsibility for all involved parties on the project.
We strongly recommend Axmit to any organization.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

Being able to have full confidence and knowing the project is in good hands.

Custom build of Clinical Study Logs within a Platform

Jean Myers
posted on 11/3/21
I am a Director of Clinical Operations at a small real-world evidence company whose mission is to use patient-centric data to develop Real World Outcomes® to accelerate drug and device discovery, and improve care and quality of life for people living with pain.
We currently run several clinical studies within our platform, and we used Axmit to develop clinical study logs (e.g., Delegation of Responsibility, Training, Site Visit, Procedures Log, Protocol Inquiry, AE/SAEs, Protocol Deviations, Site Issues/Actions, etc.). I basically wanted to have everything electronic to avoid the random, dreaded Excel logs. I provided Axmit with my specifications via an Excel mock up and they executed that into a flawless platform deliverable. They were creative with their brainstorming, cost conscious and were extremely responsive during the user acceptance testing process. I would highly recommend their services.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

They were very friendly and extremely helpful. Most importantly, they provided a phenomenal deliverable!

Executive Interview
Boris Voronov
Boris Voronov
CEO, Axmit
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the company?
In Axmit we develop mobile and web apps using a user-centred approach. We take care not only of our clients but also the end-users.

As the CEO, most of the time, I’m busy with the strategic development of the company. However, I like to be involved in the projects as I want to be sure that we deliver solutions that generate value for our clients and end-users.
What was the idea behind starting this organisation?
I had a great experience working in world-class companies with IT product in the core. These companies could afford to allocate much time on processes of recruiting and onboarding top developers and managers. This way the team members have time to get to know each other and arrange the whole work process to go smoothly so that the team is able to deliver a cool product.
I knew that smaller companies do not have these resources.

My idea was to start a company that would be a great alternative to the in-house teams. We do deliver not only the code but also provide an excellent team that is able to build high-quality products without requiring additional resources from the clients.
What are your company’s business model: in-house team or third-party vendors/ outsourcing?
We are doing all the work in-house. We believe this is the only way to maintain high quality. To ensure that the work is going in the right direction and no details are missed, developers should always be well-coordinated and in sync. Also, since our team already has significant experience in launching startups, they know the most effective ways to work, so we do not waste our customers’ time on any pitfalls.

Our team is making significant efforts to develop the local IT community to have highly skilled professionals - we arrange public meetups, hackathons and internship programmes to find new talents.
How is your business model beneficial from a value addition perspective to the clients compared to other companies' models?
We're focused on long-term relationships and not on mass production. Our goal is to exceed our clients' expectations. We engage only in projects where we believe our expertise will be essential. You will not find 100+ items in our portfolio since we take a limited number of projects at once. So I would say we are a boutique development company, in a sense.

This approach allows us to dive deeply into goals and insights our clients, combine them with the user's needs and expectations and launch great digital products to market.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repeated to you?
Our customers are from different spheres. The most challenging, but still beloved type of clients is startup companies. We do know how to work in startup mode, and this is what our clients value most of all.

We make the first version of the product stable and ready for continuous modifications in the future. It’s our investment, and the clients go to the next (growth) phase with Axmit. That means - yes, our clients are repetitive.
Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a mobile app.
Many factors should be considered, such as feature list, number of required integrations with 3rd-party services, deadlines (sales and marketing plans, obligations to the investors), etc. Some of our clients have clear deadlines of launching the products to market, in such cases, we help them to prioritise the features. We extract the essential idea of the product along with the product owner to deliver it to the market as soon as possible. Minor features that are not critical for the end-users may be postponed to the next stages of the product development. It helps to stick to the timeline as well as to the initial budget.
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of a mobile app?
It depends on the task. A small app can be developed from scratch in 2 months because we have our components, internal libraries which simplify the start of the development, while the team works very smoothly.

A different example could be an app that should replicate the functionality of a web service; it may take more than six months. In most cases, we launch the first version of the app in 3-4 months since longer development may be somewhat risky.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right platform for a mobile application?
The decision mostly depends on the product, the market (country) and the target audience. The critical parameter is the expected outcome - the number of future users to spent resources.
Which platform do you suggest your clients, to begin with when they approach you with an idea (Android or iOS) and why?
In most cases, we recommend launching the app on both platforms (iOS & Android) at once, because it allows us to reach a broader audience. But beforehand, we need to understand whether any platform-depending features are planned and estimate the cost and time of implementing the app for both platforms.
Android or iOS, Native or Hybrid — which platform is best to use to build your app? What are your recommendations?
There is no such thing as a better platform. The platform should be chosen depending on the goals of the project, its target audience, market territory and many other factors.

For instance, if it requires video graphic tools and augmented reality, then native technologies are used. If it’s more about management (and resources), social networks and market places - then the cross-platform app is the choice, as there’s no sense to pay more.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a mobile application?
Such factors as length, the complexity of the design, required integrations, sometimes urgency and so on. In fact, we estimate every feature that will be implemented and calculate the overall cost.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
We always tell the clients the overall budget, so that they know how much exactly their idea implementation costs.

We usually have milestone-based payments. The project is broken down into milestones which are documented in the roadmap (the specification). With each milestone, the client receives new independent functionality which can go live.

Some projects/clients may require different approaches in payment structure, so we are quite flexible in this.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
We do not assess the projects only in terms of budgets.

Once we worked on the small task with the budget of 2000$ as we found it interesting. Afterwards, trust relationships were established with the client, and we got x20 more significant project with him.

But let's be realistic. To launch a full-fledged marketable product with a budget below $30000 is a challenging task if you do not sacrifice the quality. And if we are talking about launching the first version of the product (!) from the idea to the first sales, the development usually costs at least $15000.
Which business model do you suggest to your clients, enabling them to generate revenue from mobile applications? Why?
Usually, the client decides how they are going to generate revenue. In case it’s not clear yet, we share our experience, explain the customer all the benefits and risks of each model. This way the client can choose the approach that is most suitable for their business.
Kindly share your feedback on how GoodFirms has been doing so far in increasing your visibility among potential clients.
